Welcome!

Get your front end up with a steering head jack. Like below







Then try to loosen the tripples and the axle... adjust it... spin the wheel and make sure its not binding. Should be able to re-tighten everything and get it back aligned...

That is if, there is nothing damaged.

Here's what I do. stand directly over the bike, so you're staring directly down the forks, look at each one. they MAY be slightly bent, somewhere. its possible that they just got moved in the triple clamps a little, which would cause your problem too.

It may be as simple as just that your clip-ons aren't adjusted to be straight.
